Game Picks - Wednesday: July 22, 2009

Wow! This picker had a really good night: only three wrong out of sixteen. The three wrong? Thought the Yankees would lose, the Red Sox and the Rockies would win. Strange. The Rangers are showing a lot of mettle to win two of three from the Red Sox to at least stay close. One pick that didn't feel that good to get correct was the Indians over Toronto as the Blue Jays loss was heartbreaking and ruined a great outing by Cecil.

Let's keep the ball rolling and see what Wednesday has in store for us:

  • The Pirates over the Brewers: The Brewers are the much better club, but Maholm is better than Suppon.
  • The Cubs over the Phillies: The Phillies have to lose some time and it might as well be against Zambrano.
  • The Yankees over the Orioles: A. J. Burnett will make sure the Orioles go Oh for 2009 in Yankee Stadium.
  • The Rockies over the Diamondbacks: How exactly did the Rockies lose that game last night?
  • The Marlins over the Padres: Nolasco has been terrific and that should continue against the poor Padres.
  • The Twins over the Athletics: Mercifully for the A's, Giambi is now on the DL.
  • The Mets over the Nationals: How about that Lannon last night? His rhythmical partner, Stammen won't have the same success.
  • The Mariners over the Tigers: King Felix will shut the Tigers down.
  • The Blue Jays over the Indians: The Pavano Experience continues. Romero should bounce back from his last bad outing.
  • The Braves over the Giants: In the best match up of the year, Jurrjens squeaks out a win over Lincecum.
  • The Astros over the Cardinals: Another great match up of Oswalt versus Carpenter. The Astros have been hot, especially at home against the Cardinals.
  • The Rangers over the Red Sox: Okay, let's ride this puppy.
  • The Angels over the Royals: The heart wanted to go with Bannister and the Royals, but the head said, "What are you, stupid?"
  • The Bay Rays over the White Sox: The listing says Shields versus Danks, but the Fan read somewhere that Danks was going to miss this start.
  • The Reds over the Dodgers: Arroyo has been great and Billingsley has looked tired.

Yesterday: 13-3 Woooo!
Week: 29-14
Month: 126-92

Congrats on a great day picking. You're as streaky as an adolescent in the 70's...

My only complaint was that it was always hairy guys that were streaking back then. Well, except for that hugely endowed stripper who loved to kiss the ball players.
